A blessing upon: the good folk of Lancashire, Staffordshire and Leicestershire, who apparently borrowed more Ruso books from their libraries than anyone else in the UK in 2008-9. This isn’t really a fair comparison, since I got the figures from the PLR (Public Lending Right) website and they only include the sample libraries chosen for that year. But thank you anyway. I hope you enjoyed them.
A curse upon: the gremlins who seem to have invaded the British distribution of ‘Ruso and the Demented Doctor’ and ‘Ruso and the Root of All Evils’. There are a few copies in a box under the desk here, so if Santa needs one urgently and the local bookshop can’t oblige, please get in touch – see below.
A warning: the gremlins have also struck the email system. I would blame the snow (since it’s being blamed for everything else) but we haven’t had any. Anyway, if you’ve made contact recently and not had an answer, please try again. To outwit the gremlins, use the ‘comment’ option below, and if it’s really just intended for me, put ‘not for the blog’ on it.
